    If they do sign him, then he would be a great addition to the team, and he probably would be an instant starter. I believe Pietrus is a great player, it's just that he never got a chance to show what he can do because he played behind Jason Richardson, but now if he becomes a starter then he can show that he can be a star in this league. He's an explosiveness player.

    SF is not nearly as pressing a need for them as PG. If they really want Pietrus though, a sign-and-trade that would also get them Jasikevicius would make sense. Getting Pietrus would probably mean they wouldn't resign Posey and he would to to the Raptors hopefully.

    I agree they do need a point guard, but I rather have Pietrus over Posey any day, I believe Pietrus is a better overall player, and we haven't seen his true potential yet, because he's been playing behind Richardson all his career, but we do know what Posey can do, and he's a great player, but I rather have Pietrus.

    They got Dequan Cook(sp) in a draft day trade with Philly, he's a SG who can play PG as well, but he's not true PG from what i've seen. I do think he will be good.

    If the Heat do get Mikael Pietrus that would be a tremendous pick up for them. He's a tremendous athelete and very underrated player in the NBA. But like Zunami said that they need a Point Guard if they want to compete for the title next year. But getting a point guard nowadays in the NBA is easier said then done.

    Its a good decision if they can get him.As we all know they do need some younger guys in there to prepare for later on.

    I read a rumor on some other forums that the Heat have signed PG Smush Parker. I'm not sure if it's true or not.

    I think it was a decent move because the Heat were looking for a point guard. Smush Parker might not be able to run the point, but as Shaq lures in the double team, he can kick it out to Smush for a 3.
